An engrossing study of shamanism and how it relates to psychology and everyday life. A unique blending of two very powerful tools. (Lynn Andrews, NY Times Bestselling author of the Medicine Women Series)
Change Your Story, Change Your Life takes the reader through several shamanic techniques including journeying, fire ceremonies and creating a despacho as well as techniques taken from Jungian tradition, or from a blend of Jungian and shamanic, such as sand painting, working with dreams and dialoguing. Throughout the book the author describes his own experiences and the conclusions he drew, also giving useful examples from his clients. In chapter three methods are explained to explore and work with your current story through writing exercises, moving on to writing your new story in chapter four. The final chapters give guidance on how to apply techniques to ensure you continue to take charge of your story and on how to participate in writing new stories for society. (June Woods, Indie Shaman)

I did wonder why painful circumstances kept repeating themselves in my life.
I was on page 25 when the words and energy of this book uncovered the deep vows I had made as a child..."I will never trust.....for they will always hurt me." When I realized that the things "being done to me" were the outcome of my own unconscious expectations I saw my own "cellular computer chip" in full operation. The moment I "got it", was the moment my life changed...immediately and dramatically.
Dr. Greer is so right, Change Your Story, Change Your Life.
Interweaving shamanic journeying, Jungian active imagination, and psychotherapy, Greer has developed an engaging guide for examining our current story that opens us up to what is in our unconscious mind. Not just to unconscious shadow material, but to the wisdom too within the hidden realms, that is intermingled with “the collective mind that we share with Source.” And the essence of Source, Greer explains, is agape, or unconditional love. Understandably then, the techniques outlined for psychological transformation are spiritual in nature, and focus on working with the archetypal energies that serve as organizing principles for the recurring themes in our lives.
One of the many gifts this book offers is Greer’s ability to hone in on the emotional stories we carry, which is how he guides us to begin exploring our current story. Once we have made contact and start to work with our current story, he turns our attention to bringing a new story into being, energetically. Showing readers how they can practice self-directed techniques of shamanic journeying and Jungian dialoguing (active imagination), Greer clearly and thoroughly describes how to prepare for shamanic practices. Then he demonstrates how to work with tools, such as symbols and imagery, ritual, or dreamwork to begin to shape and dream our new story into life.
Greer doesn’t just understand these techniques; he beautifully shows a deep, personal relationship to them through his own experiences, and through the experience of others who have benefited from these techniques. High praise is given as well for his appeal that we take what we gain from making personal changes at the energetic level out into the world too—to write new stories for society. Change Your Story, Change Your Life is a rich and compassionate guide for spiritual and psychological seekers, and for accessing the inner power to live a better life.
